He left the house and was supposed to have returned by 6pm. His mother began to panic when there was no sign of him at 9pm.

Police on Thursday released a picture of the missing child, who has been described as being 1.60 metres tall, of sturdy build, and weighing around 60 kilos. He attends a special needs school in the nearby town of Büren.
